Bach: B Minor Mass

NATHAN CARSON
7:30 pm, Friday July 12 | $29-$78.
 

[FAMOUS LAST WORDS] The B Minor Mass was J.S. Bach’s final major work. Absorbing elements of other music he’d composed as early as 1714, the Mass was completed a year before his death in 1750. It was not performed until after he’d passed, and since then has been widely interpreted, thanks to its original score’s many illegible passages, composed after he’d gone blind. Lucky for Portland, tonight’s performance is being authoritatively conducted by Helmuth Rilling. A co-founder of the Oregon Bach Festival back in 1970, Rilling chose this presentation to be his finale. The symmetry of ending his tenure with one of the supreme pieces of classical music gives him the last word on Bach’s final musical statement on faith and choral mastery.
